12 scones


  • 2 cups oat flour

  • 1 ¼ cups whole wheat pastry flour

  • 1 ¼ cups all-purpose flour

  • 4 teaspoons baking powder

  • ¾ teaspoon salt

  • ½ cup white sugar

  • ½ cup shortening

  • ½ cup butter

  • 1 tablespoon grated lemon zest

  • 2 tablespoons poppy seeds

  • cup buttermilk

  • 1 tablespoon melted butter


  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).

  2. In a large bowl, stir together the oat flour, whole wheat flour, all-purpose flour, baking powder, salt and sugar. Cut in shortening and 1/2 cup of butter until the lumps are smaller than peas. Stir in the lemon zest and poppy seeds. Make a well in the center and pour in the buttermilk. Stir just until the dry ingredients are moistened.

  3. Divide the dough into 2 pieces. Pat each one into a 1 inch thick circle. Cut circles into 6 wedges like a pie. Place pieces onto a baking sheet, and brush the tops with melted butter.

  4. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes in the preheated oven, until lightly browned. Cool on a wire rack so they do not get too crumbly.


To make your own oat flour, process regular or quick cooking oats to a fine powder in a blender or food processor.
